Midwestwind 2018

Break out the bug repellent and dust off your camping gear for Midwestwind 2018 is just around the corner.

Friday August 17 through Sunday August 19, 2018

Join your fellow Reed alumni for a relaxing weekend on Lake Michigan. You can kayak, swim, walk on the beach, play board games, and partake in stimulating conversations. Or, if you want to venture further afield, you can visit the local llama farm, hike in the Kettle Moraine Forest North, or check out the local garage sales/thrift stores.

Come for a day or the weekend. Bring the whole family! (except pets-the houses have a strict no pets policy).

Please bring food and drink to share (we have refrigerators, cooking utensils, cups, plates, a toaster that sears the Reed logo onto bread, etc). Don't forget your swimsuit, a sleeping bag, and a tent.

***Please RSVP to Alison Birkmeyer Aske '93 at by Tuesday, August 14. Indoor space is available for those who don't want to camp, but it is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis - in past years we've been able to accommodate everyone, but you must request this when you RSVP.***

We will coordinate some carpooling from Chicago - if you need to hitch a ride, or are able to drive some people up, please let us know when you RSVP.

The drive is about 2 1/2 hours from Chicago, 2 hours from Madison, and 45 minutes from Milwaukee.

Hope to see you there!

Friday, August 17, 2018 to 12:00am
